PEUGEOT’s GT and GTi lines already provide top performance levels, as will the HYBRID andHYBRID4 in the near future. The Concept 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED goes even further. It is a prelude to the development of a new range of compelling electric vehicles.
With this strategy, PEUGEOT demonstrates that electric is the source of smart neo-performance levels, uniting power and efficiency.
PEUGEOT SPORT, world-renowned for its sports model design, was given the task of developing this new model line.
Of course, PEUGEOT SPORT is celebrated worldwide in top-level international circles and by competition clients, notably for 908 and 3008 DKR, which were triumphant in the Le Mans 24-hour race and the Dakar rally, and their renown extends to 208 R2, 308 Racing-Cup and 308 TCR.
This expertise is also noticeable on the road, as PEUGEOT SPORT also developed PEUGEOT RCZ-R (2013), 208 GTi 30th (2014) and 308 GTi by PEUGEOT SPORT (2015).
For this concept vehicle, PEUGEOT SPORT drew upon the experience gained with two trailblazing electric concept cars:
the ultra-efficient 208 HYbrid FE (2013) recorded GTi-level performances with emissions and fuel consumption that were lower than the smallest ICE on the market at the time. Following a range of optimisations, a CO2/km score of 46g was achieved, with a performance of 0 à 100 km/h in only 8s,
308 R HYbrid Concept (2015) laid claim to absolute performance levels: 500 bhp total power output, 730Nm torque and 0 to 100km/h in a mere 4 seconds.
The Concept 508 PEUGEOT SPORT ENGINEERED leverages these achievements but also features the latest advances in technology to provide not only efficiency but unparalleled panache!
